The thing is, the price went up to $1249, and then I ship it for $100-200 from CO to CA, and then I pay tax.
I would consider $999 a bargain.
Yeah but finding one of the 2-4 bumpers that come up for sale that year then paying retail shipping....
Trust be your much better off biting the bullet and calling Slee to purchase, or looking for a cheaper option in your desired price range.
Just trying to help, I've been there before.
